    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at J. C. Penney (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I thought it would be a group interview but it was actually me and a manager. She asked me about myself and my interest. It was really cool and laid back. She really didnt tell me about the job i'll be doing though.
